Once again priced well out of my pensioner's means. The prices are way too high probably because so many 'staff' and 'hangers-on' get cut-price or free tickets.

AND THERE ARE NO CONCESSIONS FOR THE OLDER THAN AVERAGE - AKA PENSIONERS.

And unlike in the 1970s/80s now-a-days a 'season ticket' only gets you into basic events. Concerts, LNE, and special events, etc., still have to forked out for at the astronomical rates of 25 per event!!!!!

Then there's the usual profiteering by b&bs who put a hefty festival surcharge onto all bookings.

And all this is to say nothing abut FGW's outrageous train fares from London.

My estimate is that the week - including food - would come to about 1,500+ !!!!!!
